The Spaceship Has Landed
One of my favorite things at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is that in the nice weather they have these amazing sculptures in the roof garden. This year the artwork is called: "Tomás Saraceno on the Roof: Cloud City." It is as if a spaceship has landed, and it is an amazing structure. The cool thing is that you can go up inside it via stairs, and walk through these modular structures that are connected together. Some have clear Plexiglass floor panels which is really disconcerting, and mind-bending, and fun. The only disappointing thing was that I was not allowed to use my camera when up in the structure. I put the wrist strap on, but I think they are afraid people would drop their cameras and cellphones from a great height. Please click on this image to see a larger version, and more detail.
